In brief: Possibilities

The easy answer is the spider veins.
They are usually easily treated with sclerotherapy, as long as there isn't untreated underlying vein disease that is causing them to be there. Cellulite is more difficult. As dr. Westfried said, there are treatments for cellulite. The problem is that it takes several treatments to achieve success and touch-up and maintenance is required.
